Where surveillance technologies used to be a specialized part of urban
public space mostly aimed at crime prevention and investigation, today
surveillance in the form of automated data collection and analysis has
become an essential part of contemporary infrastructure — from smart
phones to social media, smart home devices, and beyond. Nowadays,
surveillance is both hidden and pervasive in its structure and
operation. It surrounds us as an “invisible infrastructure” that tracks
us and allows our devices to show us content tailored to “our” interests
and respond to “our” desires.
But to what extent is mass observation and data access acceptable? Where
is the fine line between new technological advances making our life
easier—whether it is physical or virtual—and becoming manipulative?
Can You See Me Now? illuminates a variety of artistic and social tactics
that address these questions and explore the shift from surveillance as
technology to surveillance as infrastructure. The artists focus on
making surveillance infrastructures visible by “performing” the
technologies in unintentional, experimental ways. Visitors are able to
discover new modes of interaction with the technology as well as
possibilities to intervene in the systems beyond the aesthetic experience.

🕳 City Walk: Offshore Tour Operator by RYBN.ORG
Limited places available — please RSVP : welcome at weareaia.art
With Offshore Tour Operator (2017 / 2022) the extradisciplinary artist
collective RYBN.ORG takes us on a tour of the physical traces of
offshore banking within the city of Zürich. The tours let the
participants hunt for shell companies, trust firms, and housing agencies
and shadow finance offices and agents tucked away within the
architecture of various Zürich neighborhoods. For the GPS-driven
psychogeographical tour RYBN.ORG extracts the data from the 800,000
addresses of the Offshore Leaks database. The work offers an entry point
and filter into what would otherwise be an overwhelming trove of
